It only seems like yesterday that we were frolicking around during one of the best summers for decades, feeling all tanned and glowing. Now, we’re well into winter and most of us have well and truly lost that glow. But, fear not – even if a tropical holiday is out of your budget, Dermalogica and Decleor have some products to help you to regain your glow and feel a little more dynamic this winter.
Unless you’re legitimately olive or dark skinned, walking around with a Cuprinol-coloured tan at this time of year is never going to look natural, however many of us feel like we lack that “glow” without any level of tan. That’s why this gradual tanner from Decleor is so good; the colour builds over time and you can add more if you want to build colour, allowing you to avoid that instant Oompa-Loompa look that so many fake tans cause.
Dull skin is super common during the winter months which is why we recommend switching your cleanser to this brightening foam, at least during the colder periods. It restores radiance to otherwise dreary skin and gives your face a boost of “White Focus” plant complex which regulates the skin’s pigmentation process.
If you’re wrapped up in layers from head-to-toe then it might be that you simply can’t be bothered with an all over tan. However, using Dermalogica Ultra Sensitive Tint will not only give your skin a boost of mineral-based colour, but also offer SPF30 protection from the sun’s harmful rays, which can still be an issue even during the colder winter months.
Such is the power of this brightening formula from Decleor that it comes in three tiny bottles which contains just a little over two tablespoons of liquid. However, these little bottles pack a massive punch and are used over just thirty days to offer a massive boost to the skin’s brightness. Not only will this reduce the appearance of already-existing pigmented spots, it will prevent more from appearing, which is a real boon.
If you are lucky enough to be jetting off to warmer climes this winter and want to make the most of the sun while you’re there, we recommend this tan activating serum from Decleor. It prepares your skin for sun exposure and boosts the skin’s ability to tan and will ultimately prolong the life of your colour. It’s recommended for use before you apply your SPF and will have the added bonus of making your face feel super smooth after a few days’ usage.
